Hello, my name is Sevin Philips. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and I’m the Founder of the Relationship Counseling Center in Miami. We know that relationships are very profound. For most of us, when things are going well, it brings us so much joy, and of course, when things break down, it’s sometimes the most difficult time in our life. We help couples and individuals work on their relationship issues.
When couples come in, we can help you create a safe environment where you guys can be vulnerable and not feel judgment or blame, and getting clear and getting to the bottom of what’s really going on between you two. With that added clarity, couples often find it’s easier to move forward. In addition, we’re going to teach you skills and tools that are necessary for you to maintain your relationship so that you can be happy and free with one another.One of the things that sets us apart is that everyone I hire in the center is also old enough to have enough life experience to back up our skillset – and that’s important for you to know. Many people find that we’re very down-to-earth. We give a lot of direct feedback, we’re very interactive in our sessions. We not only want to teach you how to do things in our sessions – communication skills, etcetera – but we want to help you do those at home where it matters most. Improving your relationship at home is what matters because when that happens, you need to end therapy, and that’s a great thing. The joy of any therapist is watching clients do really well and ending their therapy so they can go on with their lives.
Many of us consider that we are short-term therapists. We help couples sometimes maybe between 6 to 8 sessions total, on average. You might want more, and that’s completely fine too.
Sometimes individuals even want to come in and work on dating and finding the right life partner. It could be a very tough decision, perhaps we make the same mistakes over and over and we want a little extra assistance. Sometimes an individual will come in who’s married or in a long-term relationship because they want to get clear about what’s going on for them without their partner in the room. Believe it or not, you can get a lot done by yourself. Of course, we specialize in marriage counseling and couples therapy, and you two can come in any time to work on your relationship. We have a lot of experience. We are an independent third party that sometimes can make the difference in really kind of breaking the stuckness that couples get into.
If you want to give me a call, that’s a great first step, I can answer any questions that you might have. If I do and everything feels right, I usually have the Miami therapist call you immediately so you can talk to them on the phone, feel comfortable and get to know them a little bit. Also, they’ll tell you all the times they’re available to see you, both day and evening so you can come in as soon as you can. We usually can get people in within 24 to 48 hours.
Something you should consider: if either one of you has any out-of-network insurance coverage for this sort of thing, you can verify that with your insurance company. We can give you an invoice and you might be able to get some reimbursement. In addition, if you have any flex spending or health savings accounts, things like that, sometimes you can use those monies to pay for it which is really great.
We have a lot of videos and articles on our website. It’s a great way, if you watch those videos, to get to know who we are, the kind of therapists we are, the kind of advice that we give. Also, you can take some of that advice and start using it in your relationship now. It’s free of charge, and I give that to you freely.
Please check those videos out, and if you’d like to take the next step, give me a call. Thank you.
